Important Message Regarding B-192 Elections

June 2nd was supposed to be the date for tallying the ballots for the recent election. During the period when ballots were mailed out, we discovered that there were many people in our system who should have received a ballot that did not. It would not be a fair election if that was allowed to go on. The election is going to have to be rerun, including the nominations for candidates. We will update everyone on the dates as soon as possible.

Local B-192 is now providing a unique opportunity to participate in the IATSE Education and Training Department's courses. For only $25, you can choose from a variety of options, including those listed on the link provided. The cost pays for two years of access and begins on September 1st, 2016. For more information, contact our Union office and speak with our Business Agent, Matthew Nelson.
